    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I wouldn't recommend this course solely due to the professor. He was a nice person, but didn't seem to really have any direction with the chapters and the course. It seemed as if when we would go to class each day it would be very unorganized and unclear as to what his direction was.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was there were mandatory S.I. (student instructors) who you would meet with every week to go over problems and concepts. My S.I. was extremely helpful in preparing for tests and finals.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the chapters as well as do the online quizzes and homework. Try not to fall behind or you may miss concepts that are important to understanding the material.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    His lectures were very general, but his tests were very book specific.

    Course highlights:

    I did learn a lot of basic supply and demand concepts, which will help in the future. The elasticy of demand material was interesting, as well as learning about the 4 different types of market competition.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Because Professor Cooperstein's tests are very book specific, and his lectures are not versify book specific. I would recommend recording his lectures, and read the textbook in class. And if something in the textbook is hard to understand, listen back to how he described the topic. You can't make a good grade in the class just by listening to his lectures. Videos on YouTube help immensely! They make the topics very easy to understand. Always go to class. You get extra credit for going to class and at the end of the semester all the extra credit really helps your grade out.

    | Would not recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Mr. Cooperate in taught an interesting class, however, he did not teach to the test which can me quite frustrating. I put almost all of my attention on this one class and still came out with a C... This class is definitely not recommended from me.

    Course highlights:

    I gained knowledge about how current events can all tie into economics, the difference between microeconomic and macroeconomic events and most of all I learned how to study. During high school I never really had to study at all, and then college hit and I found myself in a very large pickle! Even though I did not enjoy this course, it taught me some valuable life lessons. First, even if your professor is not teaching class how you think it should be taught, you have to stick it out. Second, ask yourself when you're frustrated if you really gave the amount of effort you think you should be awarded for. Third, when in doubt, study study study!

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    I'm afraid I cannot give any insight on how to succeed in this course, because I myself did not succeed. I studied more than 25 hours for each test and was lucky if I passed it! Maybe, if anything, find your way of learning and do your best. If you at least do your absolute best and know you could not have done better, you have achieved something.
